The latest in the perennial series ... now up to 29 (or 30?) including Lee's collaboration with his brother. Jack Reacher is by far the biggest single author and series in my virtual library. I have on doubt that this will be 'more of the same', but in a good way!

(10/06/24) *moderate spoiler* This chapter of the never-ending* comic book saga is a dip into history, set in 1992 and investigations into some CIA/cold war spook activity 1969. A newly disgraced/demoted Jack Reacher (which book?) is co-opted onto an inter-agency task force to get to the bottom of the killing of scientists who were involved in some shady research in India. The book is mostly office-based for our hero, until is becomes real when they spot a possible connection with a high profile politician and one of the team is murdered. There are a lot of females in this book, including IDF-trained sisters who are almost a match for Reacher in effective killing, a partner-investigator, and one of the main protagonists (of the psycho-baddie with henchmen variety). Everything else is straight out of the normal Lee Child playbook, including a nice mention of brother Joe, so we can place this before The Affair and Killing Floor (1997).

*well it is if the ageing Reacher can draw on a whole lifetime of experience

It looks like The Falcon has closed, hopefully a temporary pause. So I’m restocking and shifting things around in the sharing shelf down the road :) If you get this far, welcome to bookcrossing!
